Shure SRH1840 vs ATH-AD2000x for classical?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My source is notebook and then Meridian Explorer DAC.

My music is classical, "Die Walkure" with Furtwangler 1954 is a good example of my misic.

I've heard ATH-AD900, hd600, hd650 and Grado.

Grado is not my case.

I like ATH-AD900, I think they are "airy" and "sing" and hd6xx are ''not envolving". I definitely prefer ATH-AD900 over hd600 and 650.

 

But I would like to have a little bit more "body" in sound. I can also add words as "step or two above ATH-AD900", "musical" and "forgiving".

 

Is that more ATH-AD2000x  or Shure SRH1840?

Is Shure SRH1840 "almost the same" as hd6xx?

Heya,

 

The SRH1840 will seem to lack body compared to the HD600 and definitely compared to the HD650. The SRH1840 is very airy and detailed, with a great sound stage, but I think you'll find it not what you're after. The AD2000X is a good starting point, it does have more body, but not a ton of low end, so it will remain fairly flat and articulate without low frequency bleed. Also look to the AKG K702 and K702 Anniversary. Similar sound to what you're looking for.

 

Very best,
